“This facility is an exemplar of environmental best practice” - Penny Hulse, AUCKLAND deputy mayor (2010-2016).
Our 2.7 ha Waste Processing Facility in Onehunga allows us to maximise recycling and reprocessing of waste and divert waste from landfill. The processing systems include a large scale mechanical and manual sort line to recover timber, metals, card, plastics, plasterboard and other valuable commodities.
GREEN GORILLA 'WALKS TALL' when it comes to OUR WASTE PROCESSING FACILITY
We receive and process large volumes of construction, manufacturing and commercial waste as well as hand sorted material from transfer stations.
Our 2.7ha facility in Onehunga, Auckland is located on a closed landfill. It's an impressive operation and interesting to note that one of New Zealand's largest Resource Recovery operations is now at home above the remnants of the very activity we are trying to minimise.
Our Waste Processing Facility is dedicated to the recycling and processing of waste material and we achieve an overall diversion rate from landfill of over 75%.
Waste is accepted on a daily basis with access restricted to commercial account holders only. As with all other material entering or leaving the site, control, weighing and billing is electronic via a number plate recognition system which operates a barrier arm for access.
And just a note to non-Green Gorilla drivers; you must have your vehicles preregistered to enable entry. Contact us for more information.
